EUGENE, Ore. -- Math and science night was a "soaring" success at Willagillespie Elementary School on Thursday night.
Kids launched six rockets into the atmosphere as part of their fun experiments. Teachers said it was all about learning more and showing off the cool things that math and science can accomplish.
"I went up there and I launched one of the rockets," McKenzie said. "It felt a little scary and awesome at the same time. Science is cool."
Kids even got to see a giant reptile eat a mouse, thanks to Reptile Universe.
